History of the company
Heinrich and Heinz Holt set up a small business in Haseluenne with a tractor and two trailers.
During the 1950s and 1960s, the group quickly switched to sewerage systems, roadworks, excavation works and the progress of construction site.
Since the group was based in rural Emsland, it was natural that it also engaged in the development of sand and gravel pits; it became the largest company in the region in this field.
1970er & 1980er
In the 70s and 80s, Holt also specialized in the renaturation of building grounds such as:
-Sealing of landfills
-Recultivation of landscapes
1990er & 2000er
As a family business, Holt himself became a very important landowner. This property gave rise to the first contact with wind energy in the 1990s.
As the economic environment changed, the activities of Holt Group did. The traditional activities were sold or abandoned in the course of time.
At the beginning of the decade, Hendrik Holt saw an opportunity in uniting Holt's reputation and knowledge in the fields of project development and wind energy with the numerous contacts among big landowners to take over the terrain of onshore wind parks.
In 2014, Holt, which until then systematically expanded its management, expertise and financial resources, reoriented its business model and approached a dual concept. On the one hand, the comprehensive terrain development and the active investment in the early stages of projects that have been taken over by other developers or owners on the other hand.
In 2016, the way was paved for geographic diversification to the Netherlands, where a subsidiary was set up in 2017. The establishment of an active group holding company in Andorra took place in the same year. Holt Holding is now an international company with its head office in Andorra.
In 2018, a French project developer took over onshore wind power plants near Toulouse, causing the entry into the French market.
In 2019, Holt Holding strengthens its position as an international operating company by opening a branch in Beirut.
